The e-TP80S NCF is a sophisticated, luxuriously made power distributor that eliminates many common problems found with audio and video components caused by massively contaminated electrical power.
The AC waveform becomes severely distorted by ground noise, voltage spikes and sags, high frequency power supply noise from other components in your own system, plus radiated high frequency digital noise from processors and digital interconnects.
There are also distortion products at the top and bottom of the AC waveform created by switch-mode power supplies in electronic devices on the same circuit. Additionally, you’re never alone; your residential AC mains supply is shared with other apartments, homes, and businesses on the same utility transformer. That’s why many audio and video enthusiasts notice their systems are more enjoyable late at night or on weekends!
The beautifully crafted special grade aluminum chassis effectively shields against another common problem, RFI (Radio Frequency Interference), and a layer of Formula GC-303 blocks EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference).
Internal wiring is FURUTECH μ-14 wire (14 AWG) that guarantees low resistance. Furutech Hyper Quality Audio Grade Receptacles are wired to the IEC AC input of the e-TP80S NCF. Receptacles feature rhodium-plated phosphor bronze, non-magnetic conductors for stable, long lasting, optimized power transfer.
Furutech’s Two-Stage Cryogenic and Demagnetization Alpha Process
Using cutting-edge technology and materials, Furutech developed a low-temperature two-stage process that significantly improves every facet of audio and video performance. The treatment begins during the manufacturing process with a deep, conditioning cryogenic freeze of all metal parts. Using high-end refrigerants — liquid N2 or He — Furutech achieves temperatures of between -196 to -250℃. The treated parts actually change their molecular structure at these extremes of temperature relieving internal stress. The molecules bond together more tightly, and the overall structure becomes more stable. This improves electrical conductivity and so power and signal transfer.
Step two in the Alpha Process exposes these same parts to the patented Ring Demagnetization treatment. Ordinary high-power magnets used for this purpose often increase magnetic effects; they leave some areas more magnetized than others. This patented process uses controlled attenuation to completely eliminate magnetization for immediately more vivid and colorful improvements. Ring Demagnetization further enhances conductivity of all treated materials.
ALL metallic parts used in Furutech products go through the Alpha Process treatment to keep all connectors, conductors, and metal parts in a perfect stress-free, stable and highly conductive state.
The GC-303 is a special material that Furutech bonds to the inner bottom plate of the chassis, absorbing any EMI noise that may be transmitted by your power source or generated by a unit’s internal equipment.
Furutech’s new E-TP80S NCF series features a high quality filter and MOV circuitry: EMI filter and surge protection combined. Voltage fluctuations and spikes can damage sensitive electronic devices. The overvoltage protection circuitry provides an effective response to protect your system. During a voltage spike, the MOV circuit automatically cuts the power to the EMI filter line on the main board to prevent a possible short circuit. This MOV circuit also dampens any electrical and mechanical resonance caused by electrical resistance, heat and energy flow. For your convenience, LEDs indicate the normal operation of the surge protection function and EMI filters. When the LEDs are lit, you are protected from noise and power surges.
Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF)
Integrated in a selection of Furutech products, NCF is based on a special crystalline material with two active properties. First, NCF generates negative ions that eliminate static electricity. Second, it converts thermal energy into infrared. Furutech combines this material with Ceramic nanoparticles and Carbon powder for their piezoelectric damping properties. Furutech thus obtains the optimal electrical and mechanical damping material.
